NASA's Aqua Satellite 3 For 1 Texas Fires, Tropical Storms (September 9, 2011)

NASA's Aqua satellite captured three major weather-related events in one image. Raging wildfires are occurring in Texas while the remnant clouds from Tropical Storm Lee in the northern Gulf of Mexico were also seen by Aqua. One satellite image taken by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured the two tropical systems and smoke from the Texas fires on Sept. 8 at 19:05 UTC (3:05 p.m. EDT). The image shows Tropical Storm Nate was still lingering along the eastern Mexico coastline, the western edge of the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee (around a low pressure area centered over Indiana) appeared in the northern Gulf and smoke plumes from Texas wildfires. The largest plume appeared light brown in color and was from the Bear Creek fire. Image Credit: NASA JPL, Ed Olsen
